Masiyanday DayCare, we offer a play based day with hidden learning!!
We provide well planned experiences indoors and outdoors based on each individual child’s interests. Our staff team will support all children to learn with enjoyment and challenge, having a balance of child initiated and adult led play based activities.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage ( EYFS) which is a statutory framework, covering learning and development from the day your child is born until the end of their first year at school. Masiyanday DayCare provides all children with a firm foundation on which to build future academic, social and emotional success. We do this by ensuring the Early Years Foundation Stage themes are embedded in all aspects of what we do.

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

The Characteristics of Learning are:

  • Playing and Exploring
  • Active Learning
  • Creating and Thinking Critically

 

 The areas of learning identified in the EYFS are:

  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Physical development
  • Communication and language
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design

 

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework

At Masiyanday DayCare, our routines, activities and nursery environments are designed to enhance these areas, offering them opportunities to play and practice their growing skills, ensuring that every child has an opportunity to learn and develop at a pace that is suitable to them.

We plan, observe and assess your children in each of these areas, allowing us to provide a variety of learning experiences that are not only of interest to them, but building on what they already know! Practitioners will observe your child on a regular basis to identify and assess the progress they are making – regardless of your child’s age or their attendance pattern at nursery. Observations help practitioners to decide where the children are in their learning and development and to plan what to do next.

Observations and photographs of your child will be placed in their own Learning Journey. This document captures their learning from the first day they start at Masiyanday until the day we say goodbye. We encourage parents and other family members to contribute to this document throughout your child’s time at Masiyanday DayCare.
